When Darl Easton, the Tarrant County, Texas Republican Chairman, appointed a devout Muslim, Dr. Shahid Shafi, as vice chair, some party members raised concerns. Why? These are some of the Tarrant County Precinct Chair John Fowler’s concerns with Dr. Shafi’s in a leadership position in the Tarrant County GOP:

    ABORTION. When running for the city council, Shafi would not say he was pro-life. In fact, he would dodge the question about abortion by saying he had never thought about it. When he was appointed to the position of vice chair in July of this year, he was asked by one of the precinct chairs at the meeting where he stood on abortion, and he said he didn’t know. He has been endorsed by the Texas Medical Association (TMA). Texas Right to Life has documented TMA’s opposition to pro-life legislation going back to at least 2003, including support of the infamous Texas death panel law. See “Texas Medical Association Protects Abortionists” on the Texas Right to Life website for more details.

    GUN CONTROL. Shafi pushed the city council to adopt a resolution in support of an anti-Second Amendment, gun control group (“Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America”). Then when questioned about it, he refused to explain his actions, much less deny the report — despite being repeatedly requested to do so by a pro-Second Amendment precinct chair who served on the board for Open Carry Tarrant County, a pro-Second Amendment group.

    NO SUPPORT FOR ISRAEL. Shafi has consistently refused to publicly state his support for the nation of Israel, in accordance with the Republican Party of Texas (RPT) platform planks no. 207 and 208. Anyone who truly supported the nation of Israel and was in line with our party platform would gladly make such a public statement.

    WORKING WITH DEMOCRATS. Shafi has involved himself with Democrats in local politics in Democrat controlled Dallas County. In 2012, he gave $1,750 to a very small IRS § 527 PAC for the purposes of helping a candidate in Dallas County. Democrats gave the most money. The PAC hired a Democrat running for office (who was supported by Planned Parenthood, the LGBT groups, the labor unions, and the state Democrat Party) to help them locally. Further, the then “alleged” head of the Muslim Brotherhood for north Texas also gave $500 to the PAC. Dr. Shahid Shafi was working with Democrats and supporting the same thing as the Muslim Brotherhood.

CONTACT WITH TERRORIST GROUPS. Shafi has had contact with known front groups for the international terrorist group, the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), in violation of RPT platform planks nos. 177 and 281. In 2015, he attended an Iftar dinner held by Dallas Democrat Mayor Mike Rawlings, which was also attended by two MB front groups, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA).

He who makes an attempt to enslave me, thereby puts himself into a state of war with me.
